From a blurring blush to your new spring kit, these are the latest launches you’ll want to discover now


The easy blush update: Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Matte Beauty Blush Wands

This is the blush that everyone has been waiting for. As an extension of Charlotte Tilbury’s beloved Pillow Talk range, it comes in three additional easy-to-wear shades – pale pink (Pink Pop), a bold berry (Dream Pop) and peach (Peach Pop) – that all deliver an understated, matte finish for that covetable post-workout glow. The creamy formula is also spiked with silica spheres to fill in and blur fine lines and wrinkles, and the product comes with a wand applicator for precise placement – think high on the apples of the cheeks to create a lifting effect. Newby Hands, global beauty director

The spring-skin essentials: Omorovicza Smooth & Firm Skin Kit

Omorovicza’s thermal-spring-water-infused creams and serums are not only a dream to apply, but incredibly effective. This five-piece kit is housed in a whimsical peacock-feather-emblazoned pouch and features three of the brand’s hero products – the butter-soft Cushioning Day Cream, which easily slots into your AM routine; the retinal-infused Midnight Renewal serum; plus everybody’s cult favorite, the Queen of Hungary face mist – alongside its Rejuvenating Night Cream and Cleansing Foam. Expect smoother, firmer, restored skin in a travel-friendly kit ideal for SS23. Malena Harbers, acting beauty editor

The subtly seductive scent: Jo Malone London Myrrh & Tonka Cologne Intense

This much-loved fragrance offers the same standout mix of notes as Jo Malone London’s original scent – lavender, myrrh, tonka bean, vanilla and almond – but now comes housed in a gorgeous, jewel-toned bottle that mirrors the cologne’s warmth and richness. You’ll get comments on your scent trail thanks to its subtly sexy, super-wearable formula. If you love an understated yet elegant fragrance, this is a must-try for both day and night. Maria Snowden, beauty buyer

The body transformer: 111Skin Celestial Black Diamond Body Cream

This neck-to-toe iteration of the original 111Skin Celestial Black Diamond Cream is everything you’d want in a body cream: it absorbs quickly, doesn’t pill or turn tacky, and offers a substantial hit of hydration to extra-dehydrated shins and elbows (hello, hyaluronic acid). But it’s the extra benefits that take this body basic to the next level. It reduces redness (thanks to centella asiatica), fades hyperpigmentation (using licorice extract), and is the only product in the Black Diamond range that contains the brand’s NAC Y2 antioxidant complex, which means it calms inflammation and smooths out fine lines. Genius. Katie Jennings, beauty buyer

The oil you never knew you needed: RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Oil Triple Defense Hydrator

Not normally a fan of facial oils? This one from RéVive sinks into skin like a serum and leaves no tackiness behind. Boasting a blend of hydrating botanical oils, vitamin C and turmeric (to tackle inflammation), plus the brand’s signature skin-renewing peptide, it really plumps the complexion while strengthening your skin barrier, too. I mix mine with my usual face cream, but you can use it at any point, morning or night, during your skincare routine for an added boost in your anti-aging arsenal. MH

The next-level makeup organizer: Smythson Panama textured-leather cosmetics case

If you like to keep your makeup staples organized and easily accessible, consider this chic, textured-leather case from Smythson your next vacation beauty essential: the top zipped compartment is for stashing brushes securely, while the bottom one holds bulkier items and space for a few skincare go-tos. I love that there’s even a pull-out mirror for touch-ups on the go, while the luxe Smythson signature Nile Blue hue will elevate your beauty game wherever you are in the world. Elle McGivern, assistant beauty buyer

The ultra-gentle exfoliator: La Mer The Resurfacing Treatment

It’s no surprise that this liquid-enzyme exfoliator (a first from La Mer) also contains the brand’s signature Miracle Broth, to ensure it replenishes skin while stimulating cell turnover and sloughing off dead surface cells. The texture is just as gentle, too – I love how the gel-like consistency really plumps, brightens and clarifies your complexion from first use. Designed to be used daily, night and day, tap it into skin with your fingers, or use a cotton pad to sweep it over your face after cleansing. NH
